McLaren Special Operations P1 is Sensationally Sinister

McLaren Special Operations has revealed its most sinister-looking P1 yet.

The British automaker’s customization arm has released images of a black and red themed McLaren P1 on its Facebook page.

The McLaren Special Operations¬†division really focused on the details when creating this P1, with its subtle blends between red and black on the body of the hybrid exotic. Even the wheels have red highlights on the ends of the spokes. On the inside, the red and black theme continues, although McLaren Special Operations carefully made sure the red didn’t simply overpower the cabin.

It appears that McLaren Special Operations drew inspiration from the McLaren-Honda Formula 1 race car that went with a subtle dark gray with red accents for its livery. The new Formula 1 livery marked the first time in a decade that the team didn’t race with a chrome finish on its race cars.
